April 4th, 1968: Death of Martin Luther King Jr.

Today, we celebrate the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., great freedom fighter in favor of Human Rights and against institutionalized racism in the USA. It was nearly 30 years ago that he fell under the bullets of a killer in Memphis, Tennessee.

Let’s not forget that only a few years ago, black Americans were really second zone citizens not allowed on some bus seats, in some bars, in some shops, reserved for whites only. Martin Luther King Jr. led the pacifist fight of black men and women who no longer accepted to be killed and maimed as if they were not even human.
